Craigs Investment Partners Bay of Plenty picked up their first win of the annual ND T20 tournament when they defeated Poverty Bay in morning action on day two.

Bay of Plenty all-rounder Peter Drysdale received a cap emblazoned with 100 games before taking to the field in the afternoon encounter against Waikato Valley – however his appearance was short-lived with all three afternoon encounters abandoned when the heavens opened.
